You won’t be able to escape them in Zero Nine, you know.

U2 annouced yesterday that yes, their new album will be released in ’09 (Friday February 27, to be exact) and yes, it will be called “No Line On The Horizon”. No doubt, a tour will also follow

Let the speculation begin! Will the band release a free download to whet appetites? Will the band leak the album? Will someone hack into the band’s e-mail accounts a la Animal Collective and send out emails pleading for hacks to leak the album? Will we get another visit from Web Sherrif? Will the band really support Kings of Leon tonight (do we even have to ask that?)? Will the band play 46 nights at The 02 next year? And, most importantly of all, will the new album be any cop?

At least the band will have $25 million in their paws now that they have sold their shares in Live Nation. No flies on U2 Inc – even though the shares are currently just worth $6.3 million, the band were guaranteed $25 million by Live Nation when they signed the deal in the first place. Now that’s what we call a sweetheart deal. As Live Nation are finding out, it’s hard out here in these credit crunch times for a live music pimp. Hey, maybe I should get Paul McGuinness to rep On The Record…..
